. kristin, welcome. >> reporter: thanks, karen. good afternoon. >> so what are we hearing about this meeting? i know it's still going on. any news? >> reporter: well, we do know this, a source familiar with these talks says that president obama is not going to be offering anything new during this afternoon's meeting. he's essentially going to be saying what he said at the white house last friday when he called on congress to put forth a package that would extend bush era tax cuts for those making $250,000 or less, extend unemployment insurance benefits, as well as stave off some of those deep spending cuts that are set to go into effect. the president is going to make the argument that he believes this can pass through both houses, but, of course, there is a big question mark over that. i have been speaking with republican aides on the hill who say house republicans are really waiting to see what the senate does at this juncture before they weigh in on anything that the president might say during today's meeting. but, of course, we will have to wait and see what actually happens. we're hopin

. it is clearly happening out there. and karen the drudge report going crazy. jared loughner used handgun and you couldn't write legislation that did not try to take that gun out of jared loughner's hand. we had a weapon that was used. i think he modified his ar 15 to be able to shoot more people faster but yeah, i think part of what is happening. we talked about this last night. people don't realize how broken our system really is. these guns are available when people should not have them. what that means, that is about mass killing. that is not about being a sportsman. that is part of what is being driven home right now. when the nra is throwing around all sorts of fake notions that are in the fake dialogue. no one is saying that you can stop everyone of these things. how hard do you you want to make it? the risk of the gun in the home is greater than the benefit. as the owner of the gun in connecticut found out when his son got his hands on it. and the accidents happen in homes with guns. how hard is that to find out. >> go figure. the other issue today is that looking around the web, it is ac

. and to you too. let's turn to karen finney tonight, former communications director of the dnc. where are we right now? i mean, who are the winners and losers right now? i think the american people are big-time losers on this deal. >> that's absolutely right, particularly after the american people spoke very clearly about what they wanted. i mean politically speaking, obviously i think the president continues to be a winner in that he has, as you were just discussing, he has tried to move, he has tried to, you know, many olive branches. i think the american people have seen him working hard. and the polls bear it out, continue to bear it out that he retains a high degree of confidence and support from the american people. i think nancy pelosi actually comes out of this with a little bit more leverage, because it's clear that any deal that gets done is going to need democratic support. and as we know, she has been a far more effective leader than john boehner has. >> sure. moments ago, the president and his family left for hawaii on board air force one. what does this look like to the america

, karen fin me and we also have robert trainam, msnbc contributor with senator rick santorum. was this like watching a train wreck in slow motion? a lot of people saying why? why did boehner do this? >> yes. but i think the reason why boehner decided to do this is because he thought he had a stronger hand. he thought going into these negotiations that his rank and file republicans were behind him and that he had his back. when he turned around, nobody was following him. at the end of the day, rep art, this was a train wreck. and this is what i was taught in high school with basic civic class here. when you are a federal legislator, regardless of whether or not you represent a hard right or hard left district, you have to put the best interests of the country first because you, in fact, are a federal legislator here. you are not just a marginal legislator here and the problem is that we have a lot of republicans that understand the constitution and they're not willing to compromise and they believe the compromise unfortunately is a dirty word and i disagree with that. >> can h

, but time is running out. there's still no real deal in sight. joining me now is congresswoman karen bass, democrat from california. congresswoman, it's great to have you here, and as we're hearing about what's taking place in washington or what was taking place before everybody closed up shop to go home for the holidays, we're hearing that more republicans are calling for compromise on the tax issue. however, nearly 200 house republicans appeared to set back speaker boehner's plan b. at this point is there hope that even a small deal will get done before the new year? >> well, i certainly hope there is, but, you know, we left -- when you said some republicans are calling for it, you are talking about republicans in the senate. not in the house, unfortunately. i do think that if the senate acts just like they have to act last year over the payroll tax hike, that maybe there will be some movement in the house. it's a shame to say, though, that the house just sent the ball over to the senate. >> let me just tell you, i hope they're talking today. at this point in time, yes, i do think that'

not provide them the mechanism to regulate gun commerce. >> karen finney, there is nothing in what we learned today about how the nra has its hands tied that is in any way involving the constitutional right to bear arms. the constitutional right to bear arms stands there unmolested, and then there's the a.t.f. just trying to do a basic job that the nra has successfully lobbied to prevent them from doing. so the whole issue of the kinds of legislation we really need in the gun arena is a much wider range of legislative vehicles than anyone is really contemplating right now. >> but also, lawrence, when we talk about common sense, one of the most interesting things when you said you were shocked, i did some research a while back, and i think most americans would be shocked to find out. because it's unthinkable -- i've used this example before -- i can't buy sudafed one day early because of the computer database that tracks how much you buy and when you buy it. i think most americans in polls are shocked to realize there isn't a system where, for example, a police officer, let's say in aurora, co
